This. So much this. #Insight  
 
I always find it fascinating how in ~every discussion about a new device people show up to claim it is doomed to fail because [list of their very own usage needs]. While this is true for every device it is especially bad with Chrome OS where a lot of people just don't seem to understand, that an ever growing number of users don't share their need for Photoshop, Autocad, whatever classic desktop app. Because they already spend their whole computer time in the browser. And that not having the complexity of other operating systems is actually a feature.
Disclaimer: Personally I really enjoy to play around with software, optimize and try to get a deeper understanding of how it all works. So I don't envision to switch to Chrome OS as my main Operating System any time soon. But I most certainly am not in the majority of computer users.

Usually the same kind of person can be found spouting off that a particular environment is totally unsuited for 'real work' and only 'drooling at videos of cats'. Which generally totally ignores the fact they don't do a single useful thing, and the people developing that environment, work inside it too.

From the touch(1) man page: "The date string format is more complex than is easily documented here but is fully described in the info documentation." #Sigh   #EyeRoll   #DoubleWork   #GNUtastic

Hmm, GNOME 3.10's System Monitor is only showing 32 CPUs (I have 40 threads). Also, its Control Center says "<CPU> × 17". This is on Ubuntu 14.04. #FirstWorldProblem

Please donate. Many people - including myself - wouldn't be where we are today without this awesome project. #GNOME   #DefendGNOME  
 
Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

Man buys 99 iPhones to propose to girlfriend, gets rejected
A Chinese programmer spent 500,000 yuan (about $82,000) — the equivalent of two years' salary — on iPhones. He arranged the gadgets into the shape of a heart, got some flowers, and proposed to his girlfriend in front of friends and colleagues.

She said no.

That awkward feeling when one of the programs you wrote in a former life is part of an exploit. At least it's not entirely my fault this time around.
Posted by Chris Evans, Exploit Writer Underling to Tavis Ormandy Back in this 1998 post to the Bugtraq mailing list, Olaf Kirch outlined an attack he called “The poisoned NUL byte”. It was an off-by-one error leading to wr...
